$4,200.00

Description

This large wooden cartouche plaque was hand-carved and hand-painted in Florence, Italy. A coat of arms display with a French style escutcheon forms the central element of the plaque. Bordered by a thin gold molding, the shield has several undulating lines of partition, known in heraldry as a line wavy or a line undy. The space between the lines have been filled in alternating colors of gray and white. A golden open crown tops the heraldic display and a geometric shape beneath the shield, resembling a placard, is also painted gold. At the base of the plaque is a curled leaf with offshoots adorned with beading that rise upwards, engulfing the shield. Our wooden cartouche plaque from Italy can be mounted to the wall of just about any room, making it a versatile decorative accessory.

CONDITION: Good condition with minor losses to wood. Intentional nicks and rubs to paint to mimic antiquity.
